Dustin McGowan held the Pirates to one run on three hits and three walks while striking out five over seven innings for the win on Sunday.
Since allowing six earned runs in a start back on April 23, McGowan has been pitching very well having surrendering only three runs over his last two outings. There was speculation that Marcus Stroman would be McGowan's replace if he had continued to struggle, but that has not been the case and the Blue Jays decided to promote their youngster anyway and use him out of the bullpen. For now McGowan's job is safe, but he is still not someone you want to have on your fantasy roster. He will look to continue moving in the right direction when he takes on the Angels on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Sean Lee passed the concussion protocol.
It looks like Lee will be on the field Sunday when the Cowboys face the Patriots. It should be interesting to see how Lee and the rest of the Dallas linebackers handle Rob Gronkowski this week. To date, the Dallas defense ranks seventh against the tight end position. Analysis: Howard Bender
Chris Culliver is not practicing Friday.
Culliver continues to miss practice with a knee injury fueling further speculation that he won't be able to play in Week 5. If he's unable to go, then Will Blackmon will likely serve as the starting corner on the right side. With DeAngelo Hall also out, the Falcons receivers could have a big day this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
LeSean McCoy is not practicing Friday.
McCoy was never expected at practice Friday to begin with as the Bills said he'd likely miss a couple of weeks with his hamstring injury. With Karlos Williams also likely to be out this week, Anthony Dixon will lead the charge out of the backfield in Week 5. Analysis: Howard Bender
Karlos Williams is not practicing Friday.
Williams is yet to be cleared via the league's concussion protocol and another missed practice on Friday seems to indicate that he won't be available Sunday. With LeSean McCoy also out, Anthony Dixon is expected to lead the charge out of the backfield Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
